  1. Do the developers read the forum much? Maybe I should try reaching out via discord or make a stream called Widget:Arena and just play competitive with the most broken add-ons/custom sounds. As it stands I lost interest in this game and so did all of my friends. I modified my game to the point of it being cheating. myself and many other people were doing this and with no response back I'm assuming that is acceptable by the developers, well that's OK but its not acceptable for me or anybody that I've talked with and you wonder why you sit at 50 players on at one time here is one of the reasons why. It reminds me of CSGO where every game somebody was assuming that a player on the other team was using some sort of hack, The difference between Turbo Pixel & Valve is that Valve says its against the rules and enforce those rules(although very poorly) as a player who wants to be legitimate the rules are set in place of what you can and cant do. In this game its open season just go wild with it. PLEASE MODERATE WIDGET & SOUNDS FOR COMPETITIVE
  2. There's a lot more you can do with widgets than timing items You will never be able to stop people cheating if they want to they can get aimbot/wall hacks and its a losing battle but my point is that there is cheating that is allowed by the developers and its sort of a grey area and if they limited it and had guidelines legit players wouldn't have to resort to modifying the shit out of their game and constantly be worried that their opponent has some add-on they dont.
  3. An individuals perception on what is considered too broken is not the issue, what the problem is that the developers (to my knowledge) have not made a statement on what is allowed and what isn't. Until the devs say whats legal/illegal and decide to crackdown on the widget system they implemented I advise every single person to use all of the shady add ons they can find, because best believe me other people are using anything they can get their hands on. I've told my friend about all the sounds I modified/add-ons I installed to give myself an advantage and it made them lose interest in the game and I'm sure if other players were aware itd be a huge turn off, because even to me its a HUGE turn off, I have such an advantage because I can time items easily and can hear exactly where they spawn, know right when they pick up any item on the map and to my knowledge its accepted by the community and the developers, its ok to cheat in this game essentially. You take the advantage of already being an arena shooter player and you add it on to that and a new player would never get a single kill.
  4. I made a video showing the timestamp/sounds in action as it stands they work in comp and seem broken to me but I dont see why I'd turn them off because I dont know that the opponent isnt using something more OP than what I'm using, I think this is very offsetting to new players especially but also experienced alike. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sWqDsUiOOaI
  5. It can be hard to recognize the default sounds in the middle of a fight with that logic of "its no advantage over somebody who can already do that" well what if you can already time items and they are some sort of item timer... it shouldn't matter you are already timing the items right? There are skills you could work on to develop and they could be using some sort of add on to make it much easier. There is one add-on I use that tells you the exact number you have to hurt yourself to pickup each type of armor, that is something people should have to learn but I just installed an add on instead. It seems like the current attitude is if it works in competitive its allowed and I'm not sure if thats healthy for the game as you would need to install a bunch of add ons just to stay competitive as a new player.
  6. I watched a stream where somebody when an armor was picked up the announcer said "yellow,red,green" and I was like wow that's kind of dumb you can tell exactly when they pickup an item and know exactly what it is with ease! I have personally changed the sound of my mega expiring to say "30 second warning" to know exactly when mega is going to respawn. I just found out that you can edit the time stamp file to make it last even longer than normal so you can see what time you picked it up at and not time it for the entire time you are fighting and still look down and be like ok now I can time it. Obviously if you had an item timer that worked in comp that would be considered cheating but there is so many addons how do you exactly tell what should be allowed and what shouldn't? To me it seems sort of like a grey area and I wish the developers would do a better job of moderating what is allowed and what isn't because as it stands some of these add-ons can offer a great advantage and you dont know if you should use it or not.
  7. I got it working thanks!
  8. I installed the tfc widget but the color pulse is purple and I couldn't figure out how to change it red
  9. Hey is it possible to make your crosshair turn red when you hit somebody similar to quake live? I looked in settings/widgets and couldn't find anything but maybe im dumb. Thanks
